This foundation SUCKS. I bought this one a whim, because of all the glowing reviews for this. I have tried A LOT of foundations, and this is one of the worst. First off, It is THICK. But doesn't give heavy coverage. It kind of just spreads around in a patchy way and doesnt quit blend into the skin at all.(I used a Beautyblender for reference.) 'The lightest coverage, "ivory" was ACTUALLY a decent match for my fair skin. It didn't seem to have any pink or orange undertones in it is, which is virtually impossible to find in a fair foundation. So, that was a plus. This foundation is not for skin that is even remotely dry. This made my normal/combo skin look PATCHY and CAKEY as heck. I haven't seen such a terrible foundation finish in quite some time. Last but not least, it broke my skin out like CRAZY. I HAVE NEVER EVER HAD A BREAKOUT FROM A FOUNDATION, But after 2 days of wearing this, my face was covered in HUGE cystic zits. I had a feeling this was going to happen, because of the oily appearance this foundation has. Regret this purchase(It was expensive for a drugstore foundation, too!)
I'm not sure if I got a fake of this or not, because it was the most disappointing product I've ever tried. I bought the lightest shade which was indeed a good match, but the quality of this product is terrible. It doesn't cover ANYYHING , it was pretty much a crappy tinted moisturizer . It broke me out too, and I never break out from foundation. It also slid right off my dry skin and never set. Terrible product don't vut
I don't know if my hair is just impervious to any type of treatment, but this did nothing for my hair. I used it after i blow-dried my hair, and worked from mid-length to ends. I then ran a flat iron over it, and my hair looks just like it always has: Dry, brittle, damaged. I even used it in conjunction with the Ciment thermique. I dont understand.
Admittedly, I am disappointed in this purchase. I've been trying to convince myself to pull the trigger on this foundation order, and finally did it, only to find myself pretty displeased . The lightest shade(I forget the name) is actually a pretty decent match for my extremely pale skin. Initially , it has a SLIGHT yellow tint to it, but that goes away within a few minutes of application. I find that the blendability of this foundation isn't as good as previous mineral Makeups I've tried, and i find the more I blend , the more cakey it looks. This is the first mineral makeup I've tried that actually doesn't feel right on my skin. It doesn't feel light and natural like most mmU, and I actually could not wait to wash this off of my face after a few hours. I have dry skin also, and this foundation made me very oily and the foundation looked patchy within a few hours . It also settles into every crease on my face and cakes up around my nose no matter how little I apply. The coverage is decent, the sheen doesn't really give any sort of desireable glow; I just am not impressed with this foundation at all. I will return and buy my newly discovered Becca budoir foundation. :(

Let me start off by saying I NEVER write product reviews, because, well, I'm simply never impressed enough to take the time to talk about a product. So the fact that I'm reviewing this foundation, must mean it's FANTASTIC. I have tried every single foundation on the market, and Ive never been pleased until now. This foundation is truly AMAZING and the best in the market . The coverage is phenomenal, it covers redness and blemishes effortlessly , but still looks natural. This is the least cakey looking foundation ive ever tried, but the thing that stuns me the most about this foundation is the glow that it gives! My skin looks so dewy and glowy and perfect , I've never experienced this before in a foundation! This without a doubt would be my HG, if it weren't for two earth shattering reasons : 1) shade . I am extremely pale, and the lightest shade is just one shade off from being perfect for me. If they were to come out with just a shade lighter in selection, I'd be sold forever! And 2) the price . I spent 40usd on this foundation, and while I have spent more on crappier products , I feel like the amount they give you is not enough to justify the price . I hit pan in about 2 weeks.. The quantity is absolutely minuscule! Regardless, if you have not tried this foundation, do it immediately ! You will be astonished at the finish and durability

I wanted to love this foundation because the lightest shade was the best match I've ever found for my extremely pale skin. The finish was very dry looking and it accentuated every dry flake I have on my face. After only a couple hours, I looked in the mirror and it was coming off of my skin in patches. I tried to wipe it off(I was at work) and it just made my face look even more flaky. I returned immediately.
I guess I am in the minority here, but this is the worst mineral makeup i have ever tried. And I have tried a lot! It covers nicely, but the lightest shade(I am very fair) is too yellow and sallow looking. I also have never had a mineral makeup look SO fake before, and accentuate EVERY DRY FLAKE i have on my face. I am so disappointed in this, because I've heard good things. Do not use this if you have even remotely dry skin.
I like this lipstick, alot! I'm a PPP with pigmented lips so it shows up as sort of a muted HOT PINK. The first time i put this on, I didn't like it too much. But then the 2nd time i put some nude lipliner on first, then dabbed Louisiana on with my fingers and now i love it. Its subtle, but hot at the same time. Will repurchase.
I ADORE this lipstick! It is by far my favorite shade! I was on a mission to find a sort of barbie, baby doll pink but I was worried that Narcissus was going to be too "BAM. LOOK AT ME." But because my lips are so pigmented, this was muted and pretty and pink yet not overly so. I will definitely repurchase this again and again!
I was so excited when I included this in my NYX order, however, ironically enough this was the only lipstick I ended up not liking. The color is great, it is very unique and fierce, but it just didnt look right on me. Because it's orange-based it made my teeth look very yellow, and they are not at all! I'm obsessive about whitening them. I think this would look great on the right person, but definitely not on me. Wont repurchase.

I adore this product. I can't believe I lived without it for so long! It's so creamy and easy to apply-not to mention it lasts a very long time which is a miracle in itself on my oily eyelids.I feel like the formula has changed though, because recently I've noticed it doesnt last as long as it used to, say when i bought it a year or two ago. Back then it'd last on my water line all day, and now it lasts maybe 20 minutes. It isn't that big of a deal though because I now only wear eyeliner on my top lid. I feel like it dries out alot quicker now, which is a problem i never had with the old formula. Overall, its definitely a staple in my makeup bag. will repurchase again and again!
I love this stuff. It is my go to product when I want a dewy, natural foundation look. Even when im not wearing any foundation i love to spritz this on my face to sort of refresh my face and look hydrated. Love it!

I like this TM. It covers everything, it looks natural, and it's easy to apply. I apply it with my MAC 187 and it looks so flawless. The packaging is GREAT, i love how it's in a little squeeze type bottle. The only downside to this product is i am VERY pale, and the light shade is NOT light enough. If this came in a significantly lighter shade, this would be my HG. I wont buy it again, because of the color issues but if i were a little darker again this would be my go to TM.
This stuff is horrible. I continued using this product for 6 months in hopes that all it took was time to take effect. WRONG. This stuff not only did NOTHING good for my skin but in fact it made me break out twice as much. This seriously ruined my skin. It burned it, it irritated it, it broke me out, it dried it out, it made me skin look thinner, and ever since i started using it i have noticed little red "freckles" popping up over my face that havent gotten away even though i stopped using this a year ago. This is the worst acne product out there. Do not waste your money.
I was all excited about this when i received it in the mail. I thought it would finally due the trick to making my makeup last more than a couple of hours, and to give me skin a more smooth finish. Well not only was i disappointed with how little product you receive for 20 dollars, but this stuff doesn't even work. It Didn't make my makeup last, and didn't make my foundation more even. it makes my foundation show dry patches on my face after using this, which hasn't ever happened before. Why? I have no idea. Definite no repurchase. 20 bucks down the drain.
